Snowpocalypse shuts down New York (Graphic language video included)

Washington: The US National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for parts of New York, New Jersey and other states along the east coast of the United States as a major winter storm bears down on the area on Sunday.

A band of frigid weather was snaking up the East Coast on Sunday, promising blizzards and a foot of snow for New York City and New England, while several states made emergency declarations as the storm caused crashes on slick roads.

Heavy snow and blizzards in parts of North Carolina were making driving conditions difficult, and there were dozens of traffic accidents.

North Carolina authorities reported a fatal traffic accident near Charlotte.

The North Carolina Highway Patrol said late on Saturday that most of the roads in and around Asheville were either covered or partially covered with snow and ice.

Columbia, in South Carolina, had its first significant Christmas snow since weather records were first kept in 1887.

Airlines grounded hundreds of flights on Sunday along the Northeast corridor in anticipation of the storm, affecting major airports including New York's John F Kennedy Airport and Newark.

New York City-area airports alone cancelled close to 1,000 flights.

Residents of Secaucus in New Jersey have been buying shovels and sacks of sand in local supermarkets, preparing to fight severe weather conditions.

The Northeast is expected to get the brunt of the storm.

Forecasters issued a blizzard warning for New York City for Sunday and Monday, with a forecast of 11 to 16 inches (28 to 41 centimetres) of snow and strong winds that will reduce visibility to near zero at times.

A blizzard warning was also in effect for Rhode Island and most of eastern Massachusetts including Boston

A blizzard warning is issued when snow is accompanied by sustained winds or gusts over 35 miles-per-hour (56 kilometres-per-hour).

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter declared a snow emergency as of 2 p.m. (and he urged residents to stay off the roads.

In Washington DC, transportation officials treated roads with salt and readied 200 salt trucks and ploughs in preparation for the six inches (15 centimetres) of snow to fall in the Mid-Atlantic region.

In Boston, Mayor Thomas Menino declared a snow emergency that bans parking on all major streets.

By early Sunday, Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina had also declared states of emergency.

Amtrak cancelled several of its trains in Virginia.

If you think that video is hilarious, just watch what NYC genocidal maniacs do to unborn infants. You’ll roll on the floor laughing your ass off.

You bet...All they had to do was drag the tractor sideways a few feet, away from the parked vehicle, with the tow truck winch...

Watching these people is truly scary...In a funny way!

I would guess they have no choice in the matter and don't have city workers destroying their vehicles...

BTW, I have relatives in rural Pennsylvania...They're going to deal with it by moving away...They've had enough...

I bet there’s tow truck and bucket loader drivers in Minnesota that will see this video and know they could train chimpanzees from the Minneapolis Zoo to solve this problem without causing a penny’s worth of damages to anyone.

The worst disruption has been in the major coastal cities, Boston, NYC etc. Aren't these ultra-liberal dictatorships supposed to be paradise on earth?

Northern NH got 2ft of snow and they are jumping for joy. People are heading to the slopes and snowmobile trails.

Dittos that in Wisconsin. Man, watching the Easterners having meltdowns over this is just laughable. When we had our recent 22” snowfall, I couldn’t wait to get out there and fire up the snowblower! Cleared mine and helped a couple neighbors finish theirs. Most everyone was out just taking care of business, shoveling out right away.

Great post. LOL.

I remember getting stuck for a day in a small town in the Canadian Rockies due to an 18-inch snowstorm that closed the road over the mountain pass where I was supposed to be driving. In August.

Suck it up, folks . . . it's winter, for heaven's sake!

I live in snow country. Every three or four years we have 3-6 feet of snow and it buries the cars—you cannot even see they are there. So we park in the driveway. Or, if the car by some misfortune ends up on the street, we shovel it out so the plows will see it. That’s a lot of shoveling. Then, when the plows come by, they throw the snow and ice back onto the car.

I have thought about using poles stuck in the snow with flags on them. They would sure be a lot less work.

"I’ve been watching the news all morning. Seems like all the complaining is in the cities. Country folk just deal with it."

We live in a small town in Southern Ohio. For years now our city government has been telling us they are out of money. (They are, union workers run amok, mismanagement of funds, unfunded mandates from the State and Fed, etc.).

The Same is happening in our County AND of course the State. Bottom line street cleanup of snow and ice is now suffering because of the money issues.

Now all those folks who made fun of us for having the only car we own be a 4 wheel drive SUV are not laughing so much.

Many can't get to work or the store when we are hit with a bad snow. Of course they mostly blame the Government. I notice the most vocal of this lot have Obama stickers on their vehicles.

I used to live in a remote part of the Appalachians. We often went a week or so without power in the winter. We had propane lanterns, wood heat and could cook over the fire.

It wasn’t unusual we had to hike a few miles up the dirt road to the house. Even our Jeep 4 wheel drive had trouble getting up the mountain. If you slid off the mountain it was a long drop. Our tractor could usually make it up and down though.

But you just prepare for winter and go with it.

Just a few miles away from me we get twelve feet at a time when a storm comes through, like it did for the last two weeks. We just don't get constant winter conditions like you're used to.

Your snow removal guys must be world class experts, along with whatever experts that Russia and Canada can show.

It reminds me of a story. In 2005 I convinced Mrs. gitmo to go camping with me. We spent a couple weeks in the mountains with the little gitmos. She wasn’t thrilled with it, but she did OK. That was her very first experience camping. She told me she didn’t want to do it again.

That fall, Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. We were watching the folks on TV, apparently helpless after the storm. They were wandering the streets and nobody was there to help them.

My wife turned to me and said, “You know, if those people knew how to camp they wouldn’t be in trouble.”

I said, “Honey, now you understand what campings all about.”

Nice! You’re warmer than we are. I doubt we are going to go over low 60’s today but 70 tomorrow and mid 70’s through Sunday. This winter is definitely like last winter, a cold one. Darn global warming. :P I spent a month in Chicago one winter. Snow, mud, cloudy almost the entire time. I knew then that I would never leave Florida. California is beautiful and the weather is heavenly, but I’ll never leave the South. It’s home.

No mud where I live, white sand. No Gators either, not here but I've lived where they were in FL. Seen them, caught baby ones while fishing, they are pretty much afraid of people. Now mosquitoes, sometimes, in the summer after heavy rains for several days. Wear Avon Skin So soft, they leave you alone. Almost never have flies, ants, spiders, do see an occasional Scorpion outside in the summer.
